The Crawford County Conservation Board was established
in 1963 for the purpose of acquiring, developing and
maintaining parks and conservation areas, to promote and
preserve the general welfare of the people, to encourage
the conservation of natural resources and to cultivate good
citizenship by providing adequate programs for public
recreation.
Since its establishment, the
Board has acquired 1115
acres of land in Crawford County which has been
developed into parks, wildlife and forest areas, public
hunting areas and a historical site. In addition, the Board
holds six management agreements on 16.5 acres of native
prairie located through out the county. For the river
enthusiast, four public access areas have been developed
on the Boyer River.
The Administrative office of the Crawford County
Conservation Board is located in the Crawford County
Courthouse,
Denison, Iowa.
